A middle-aged man alighted from a taxi, pulled off his clothes and started running. He ran unclad for about two kilometres before he stopped, looking confused.
The incident which happened at about 2.00 p.m. around Chida junction, Utako in Abuja, shocked onlookers in the area, with some claiming he could be on drugs, while others say he was probably under a ‘spiritual attack’.
“He alighted from a taxi, removed all his clothes including underwear, placed his phones on the clothes and started running,” a witness who didn’t want to be named said.
The witness told Daily Trust that the man may not have been on drugs and that he may also not be insane as he regained his senses before he got to Jabi traffic intersection.
“After he returned to his senses, he hid behind a vehicle trying to cover himself until some fellows took his clothes to him,” he said, adding that the man confessed that that was not the first time something like that had happened to him.
“He left here about 15 minutes ago. But he was calm and sober having recovered from whatever had happened to him,” he said.
Sympathisers urged him to go seek help for himself.
